Pelican Kettles

On the drive back up from the coast this afternoon, we encountered a large migration of American White Pelican just north on Karnes, TX along Hwy 123. We initially saw several undulating V-formations crossing the road heading NNE. When we caught up with them shortly after, they had formed up into several large kettles and were gaining considerable elevation. We noticed many with the breeding "keels" on their bills.
